Ishant Sharma - I am not treated as a senior, we don't have anything like that. We always enjoy each other's success, speak with each other and try and share our plans.

Record Alert! This is India's 10th win by an innings under Virat Kohli. He goes past the record of 9 under MS Dhoni.

15:38 (IST)

OUT! Ebadot looks to go big against Ashwin but Umesh Yadav comes around to take a good good catch to wrap up the win. India have won by an innings and 130 runs and taken a 1-0 lead in the two match Test series.

15:29 (IST)

OUT! Cheteshwar Pujara runs back from mid-off, a long way back, to catch the miscued hit from Mushfiqur Rahim off Ashwin. Bangladesh lose their 9th wicket and India are almost home. 

15:25 (IST)

Shami could have had his fifth for the innings. Jadeja almost held on for a sharp chance of Jayed, who's not enjoying being out there on the other end. India two wickets away from the win. 

15:21 (IST)

OUT! Finally the break through! Shami bangs it in short and Taijul Islam can't do more than giving Wriddhiman Saha a simple catch from the shoulder of his bat. India two wickets away now. 

15:20 (IST)

Ashwin in again and Rahim plays him away to third man for a boundry to start the over with. Late late shot from him helped get it in the gap. Bangladesh are 208/7. 

15:16 (IST)

After another Ashwin maiden, Shami finally breaks the trend as Rahim knocks him away for a single. Taijul, who survived a bat-pad appeal, in the previous over played out the rest of the over comfortably. 

15:08 (IST)

The flurry of maidens continue. Shami's bowled another one and is looking for his fourth wicket of the innings. 

15:04 (IST)

Ashwin's bowled another maiden here to the Taijul Islam who seems to be digging in. India hunting for another wicket soon, so they can start to wrap things up here in Indore. 

15:01 (IST)

Kohli has turned to his second innings specialist Mohammed Shami now, who comes in and bowls with fire but Bangladesh survive. The crowd's getting behind India too and making their presence felt. 

14:56 (IST)

Ashwin replaces Jadeja at one end, but there is no joy yet for India in terms of a wicket. Six dots however for Ashwin gives him a maiden. 

14:54 (IST)

Runs for Bangladesh and it's six of them from Umesh Yadav's over. Islam almost edges it to Saha behind the wicket before glancing one away for four down to third man. Two singles other than that take them to 203/7. India need 3 wickets to win against Bangladesh.

14:49 (IST)

Rahim picks a single of the first delivery of Jadeja's next over and Islam fends off the rest as Bangladesh look to take it over by over here in a battle for survival. 

14:46 (IST)

Good maiden over by Umesh Yadav to Taijul Islam. Has him feeling outside the off stump too at the end of the over but Bangladesh survive. 

14:42 (IST)

Jadeja, still looking for his first wicket of the game, hustles through another over and has conceded just two runs. Don't think India care much for the runs at this point in time. India are three wickets away from winning this. 

14:37 (IST)

OUT: Umesh starts the proceedings after tea. He would look to break the partnership and take the team closer to win. The ball comes back in sharply and hits the stumps. Bangladesh are 194/7.

14:14 (IST)

TEA: So all in all a good session for the Bangladeshis. They have added 130-odd runs in this session. So at tea, Bangladesh are 191/6. 

14:11 (IST)

FOUR: Shami is bowling well, but it looks like batsmen have managed to tire the Indian bowlers. Bangladesh are still dealing in boundaries at the moment. Bangladesh are 189/6.

13:59 (IST)

Another little partnership is brewing now between Mehidy Hasan and Mushfiqur. They would not like to throw it away here. Bangladesh move to 179/6. 

13:47 (IST)

Ashwin has found his rhythm here and troubling the batsmen. He looks like very close to picking up a wicket again. Bangladesh move to 167/6. 

13:39 (IST)

The problem with Bangladesh batsmen has been that they have just looked for quick runs that has led to their downfall. Bangladesh are 162/6 now. 

13:27 (IST)
Just four wickets away from a win
13:21 (IST)

OUT: Here is the sixth wicket for India. Ashwin has his man. Liton Das plays the ball straight back to the bowler. He departs for 35 as Bangladesh are 135/6. 

13:19 (IST)

This has been excellent partnership for Bangladesh. They are attacking the spinners and getting a boundary in every over. India need to break this partnership as soon as possible. It's 134/5 at the moment. 

13:11 (IST)

FIFTY PARTNERSHIP: Mushfiqur and Liton have batted exceptionally well here and they have stitched together 50 runs. They need a lot more from this pair as Bangladesh move to 125/5. 

12:59 (IST)

Suddenly Bangladeshi batsmen are on the counter-attack. Liton Das is dealing in boundaries and has already reached 24. But they have to preserve wickets here. Still a good batting track, this. Bangladesh are 109/5. 

12:51 (IST)
India on top here.

India vs Bangladesh, 1st Test Match at Indore, Day 3, Highlights: As it Happened

LATEST UPDATE, India vs Bangladesh 1st Test:OUT! Ebadot looks to go big against Ashwin but Umesh Yadav comes around to take a good good catch to wrap up the win. India have won by an innings and 130 runs and taken a 1-0 lead in the two match Test series.

Day 2 report: Mayank Agarwal took Bangladesh's bowling unit to the cleaners, scoring a career-best second double hundred as India took firm control of the match on the second day of the opening Test at Indore on Friday (November 15).

Agarwal's knock of 243 off 330 balls, his third century in Test cricket, powered India to 493-6 at stumps, which gave the home side a massive lead of 343 runs.

The day belonged to Agarwal, who in this particular innings, managed to overshadow a batting line-up that has Rohit Sharma (6), Cheteshwar Pujara (54), skipper Virat Kohli (0) and Ajinkya Rahane (86) in its ranks.

Agarwal's partnership of 91 for the second wicket with Pujara and 190 for the fourth wicket with Rahane were however important in the context of the Indian innings.

A whirlwind partnership of 123 in 23.5 overs with Ravindra Jadeja (60*) for the fifth wicket only added insult to injury for Bangladesh.

The match might be over inside three days if India declare overnight.

For Agarwal, his voracious appetite for runs, carefully cultivated through solid performances at the domestic and India 'A' level, is paying dividends.

Exactly one year ago, Agarwal was in the fringe as lost out to the prodigious talent of Prithvi Shaw, who was given preference and a headstart at the international arena.

Destiny, however, had other plans as Shaw got injured and also lost a bit of focus. That was the opening Agarwal was looking for and he is showing with each innings that he is not going anywhere too soon.

Having scored those tough runs Down Under, Agarwal has now earned the right to consolidate his place with some heavy duty scoring. And he is doing that exactly.

It did help that Bangladesh got their bowling combination awfully wrong.

On a pitch, where someone with express pace and variation was needed, the visitors fielded two specialist spinners in left-arm orthodox Taijul Islam (0/120 in 28 overs) and off-spinner Mehidy Hasan Miraj (1/115 in 27 overs).

The spin duo was like lambs for slaughter as Agarwal went after them with all his might.

All the eight sixes that he hit came off the two spinners. This apart, he also hit 28 boundaries during his career-best international score.

The coveted double hundred came by lofting Miraj over long-on while the stand-out six was an inside out over extra cover off Taijul. Then there was one down the ground and a couple over long-off.

The spinners were either bowling too short or too full outside the off-stump. At one stage, Miraj, a former Bangladesh U-19 captain, completely lost confidence as he started coming round the wicket.

The negative field placement for an off-spinner -- a deep point for saving a cut shot and deep square leg for saving a pull-shot -- was a reflection of Bangladesh's approach.

Abu Jayed (4/108 in 25 overs) was the only bowler, who showed some heart getting the wickets of Pujara, Kohli and Rahane but his new ball Ebadot Hossain (1/115 in 31 overs) neither had pace nor the variation to trouble the Indian batsmen.

They attacked him at will and defended when they found it necessary.

The lack of pace also became a factor and the pitch on which Indian pacers looked menacing, Bangladesh's medium pacers merely went through the motions.

Each boundary left their shoulders dropping further and by the time Agarwal was out trying to hit his ninth six, the visitors had resigned to the fate that the remainder of this Test match will now be a mere formality.
